Medic Mentor National Healthcare Weekend for S3, S4 & S5

200 healthcare professionals from across Scotland will be volunteering to present and network with students who are interested in:

  • Medicine
  • Veterinary Medicine
  • Nursing & Midwifery
  • Dentistry
  • Pharmacy
  • Biomedical Sciences
  • Psychology

at National Healthcare Weekend on the 4th and 5th November taking place at the University of Stirling: 7 conferences on different specialties in the same location on the same day!

Please note that these events are likely to fill up quickly!

It is a highly valuable opportunity for students to network with a variety of healthcare professions, learn about work experience opportunities and how to make a successful application.

Registration is £25 for students on the Saturday conferences and there is an optional UCAS lecture available on Sunday for each specialty.

Students can register on the Medic Mentor website and find out more about the event here.

All proceeds from the weekend will be used to support our UK’s healthcare students with scholarships, elective bursaries, free training and educational initiatives.
